What are structural diagnoses of pain?

  • ARick Olderman, Physical Therapy, answered
    Functional problems of the body -- those in which muscles or joints do not move optimally, creating stress to the tissues -- often lead to structural diagnoses and pain. I believe the repeated stress from functional problems leads to physical changes in the body such as degenerative disks, arthritis, or disk bulges -- in other words, structural diagnoses. Structural diagnoses do not describe the roots of the pain but are instead symptoms the root problems create.
